“Secondly, the last time we had this kind of meeting was just before the elections, when we invited you to ask for your support to ask you to do everything you could to help us achieve success at the elections. I have seen, I have heard a lot of you that have worked like there is no tomorrow in order for us to be successful at the election. I have also seen and also heard some who have worked like there is no tomorrow for us to lose the election.
“At the end of the day, as we say in the Dangote family, with God on your side, nothing is impossible. At the end of the day we are all successful because we won the election.
“I want to thank those of you specifically who have worked round the clock and did not listen to any side comments but your loyalty to God Almighty and your loyalty by the oath you have taken to be able to deliver us.
“For other sentimental reasons, other people have done what they wanted. Once God made me successful, I had always keep everything aside so that we can move forward. That is the reason why I didn’t listen to advice to sack those that worked against us immediately after the election. Decisions taken out of anger sometimes you throw out the baby together with the bath water.
“We refused to do that because we know sooner or later, life itself has an end what much more of worldly things. I want to thank everyone of us, especially those who have helped us to achieve what we have achieved. Because for every beginning, there must be an end,” he stated.
The Governor promised to work again with appointees that have proved to be loyal, truthful and dedicated.
“And for some of you, if I have the opportunity to work with you again, I will work with you. Because you have proved to me that you are loyal, truthful, dedicated. You are professional, you know your work and have the capacity to deliver. For that reason, I will be more than happy to work with you again,” he assured.
Speaking on behalf of the former appointees, immediate past Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Associate Professor Abdulkareem Kana, thanked the Governor for finding them worthy to serve under his administration.
He appreciated Engineer Sule for sacrificing his personal comfort to come and serve the people of Nasarawa State.
Prof Kana prayed for God to guide the Governor as he prepare to be inaugurated for another term in office.
